Today, Russ had a doctor's appointment in La Jolla he got the ok to start bearing weight on his wrist, this means he can use a regular walker, this is really great news. Since we were already in the neighborhood we stop at Hazard so Russ could say hi, Mario got a little more then a hi (should I be jealous?). It was great to see him in his element and in a vest and hard hat again, too bad he can't play (work) in the dirt yet.
I haven't posted lately so I'll digress and update you all on what's been happening. In my last post I talked about a new medication for nerve pain that Russ started last week. The meds seem to be helping and he's moving better, which means the psychical therapist is working him harder. He's very tired when he comes back from rehab, but in good spirits. He's going up a few stairs (with help), balancing on a board with half ball under it, and doing squats. Wow, who needs a gym membership. His wrist therapist is working on strength, flexibility, and dexterity. He made the mistake one day of saying something she was having him do was easy, boy he says won't do that again.
Russ is working really hard and making good progress, his attitude is good most of the time, and we haven't killed each other. Keep praying it's working.
